October Skies

She pretends to be fine

hoping that he cant see through her mind.

I should have learned to shield my heart

Now every time I see you, I can’t help but fall apart.

The truth hurts more than your lies

Our past is left to hover in the October skies.

  1. I have officially read my first poem on WordPress! I have several thoughts at once:

    • Wow, this hits hard. A tragic heartbreak and its lingering pain…
    • Written in 2011?! I don’t think I even started writing poetry until 2012.
    — May I ask how long you’ve been writing poetry?
    • The meter is a little off and the third person switches to first. Is this the raw, unedited version of the poem? It looks sort of like my own poetry when I first get it onto the page.
    — I’ve no qualms with poetry as such. In fact, editing my own poetry for publication is by far the hardest, most painful thing I’ve ever done in writing.

    Cheers! I want to make some time to read more of your work soon.

    1. I probably started writing poetry back in 2006 or 07. This is two sections of one longer poem which is why it switches from third person. Plus I hate editing. Thanks for the in-depth comment!
